It does the essentials you’ll need to manage your fantasy baseball team from your iPhone, iPad or Android device, but it certainly isn’t the end-all-be-all of fantasy baseball apps. It’s really a rather mediocre offering. The App is free and you can pay to get an “upgraded” version, but we see little reason to upgrade. You’ll get some additional content, but it’s nothing you won’t find for free on ESPN’s website.
